How do I know which direction my house is facing?

The location of the main door of the house The main entrance should face north, east, or north-east, according to Vastu Shastra. However, here are some other scenarios: If you wish to build/install an entry door in the north wall, make sure it is in the north-east area of the north wall. Otherwise, the door will be facing inward into the house.

If there is more than one entrance into your home, then they should all face in the same direction. For example, if the west side of your house has its own entrance, then that entrance should be on the west side of the house.

Your house should have a single entrance, and that entrance should face north. This is recommended by Vastu Shastra because every direction has something good about it. If your house had several entrances, then people could come in from any direction and start looking around, which could cause problems for you (see image below).

So, always make sure that the main entrance of your house is on the north side, even if you have another entrance from the west side of your house.

Also remember that important buildings such as hospitals, schools, temples, etc. should have their main entrance on the south or east sides to keep evil spirits away.

Is the north entrance good for a house?

The primary door or entry should always face north, north-east, east, or west, as they are considered fortunate orientations. Avoid placing the main entrance in the south, south-west, north-west (north side), or south-east (east side).

An alternative way into your home is through a secondary door: this can be useful if you have two entrances from the street or if one of them is blocked off. These doors should also face in a direction that will bring good luck - options include north, north-east, east, or south-east. Avoid placing secondary entrances in the south, south-west, north-west (main entrance), or south-east (opposite main entrance).

It is important to note that these rules are general guidelines only. The main entrance to your home should be based on what feels right for you and your family. No matter which direction it faces, as long as it gets enough sunlight during the day it will provide protection at night too.

Besides being lucky, facing the main entrance towards the north helps keep intruders out. Thieves usually look for easy targets so keeping your main entrance protected by a gate or locked door is recommended. Also remember that someone who knows your address could always ring the doorbell or use the backdoor to get inside your home.

Which direction is bad for the house?

The main door should always face north, north-east, east, or west, as they are considered fortunate orientations. These areas are associated with death and destruction.

The directions you named are all beneficial directions. They're called "fortunate" directions because they produce good luck. This good luck will come in the form of wealth if you place a money shrine in one of these areas, or health if you build a prayer shrine in one of these areas.

There is no such thing as bad luck, only misdirection of energy which can be corrected by placing important items in appropriate shrines/altars/money jars/etc.

In conclusion, there are no bad entrances, only bad intentions. Place your main entrance in a beneficial direction to keep good luck coming into your home.

Which entrance is best for the house?

The main entrance to a home, according to Vastu Shastra, is not just the entry point for the family, but also for energy. The main door, which is regarded as the "archway to triumph and progress in life," should face north, east, or north-east. It should be wide enough for cars to enter easily, and it should have two locks: one for inside use and another for outside use.

In addition, the floor above the main entrance should be flat so that people can walk up them without stairs. If there are steps going up, this could be seen as an insult by the Vastu Shastra practitioner since it means that someone else has entered the home before them.

People often ask which direction is best for the garage. In fact, the best direction for the garage is any direction other than the main entrance. Garages are considered important areas to align with the universe' design principles, and the main entrance should not have a garage because all vehicles need to go in and out of the house through the main entrance.

Overall, the main entrance should be well maintained, clean, and free of clutter so that it feels welcoming and attractive. It should also be safe by having a lock on it. These factors should be taken into account when planning a new home or shopping for an existing home.

In which direction should the house be higher?

According to Vastu principles, the front of the home should be built low and the back on a higher position. As a result, a primary gate facing north or east is preferable. A secondary entrance from the west is also acceptable.

A high front door is beneficial for women who wish to keep their homes isolated from public view. It also helps in maintaining privacy for those who need it. Of course, a ground floor entryway is easiest for elderly or handicapped people to navigate.

The highest point of a building should be its roof. This allows sunlight into the house during the day and heat out at night. If the roof is lower than other parts of the building, then this creates a depression that can cause problems for plants and water may collect in. The lowest point of a building should be its foundation. This ensures that no part of the house rises above its surrounding environment. Problems can arise if this level is too high or low.

Generally, buildings should not be taller than they are wide. This is because more stress is placed on the structure as it gets taller. There are exceptions to this rule, such as skyscrapers and domes. These structures place less stress on the foundations than otherwise would be expected due to their shape. However, even they must have solid bases to be stable.

Which direction should a door swing?

In general, you want the door to swing in the least visible direction possible, which might be outward if the entrance is in the centre of the room. If it's on the side, though, then it should swing toward the corner where it will cause the fewest problems for people when they enter or leave.

The only time this doesn't apply is if there's a right angle (90 degrees) between the entry and exit, in which case both directions work. But even here, you usually want it to swing away from the corner so as not to block the exit.

This may seem like a small thing, but it can make all the difference between being able to fit through a doorway and having to go around it.

Which is the correct direction for a house plan?

The summit is always north, according to the international standard for directions. The north orientation should always be highlighted on top of every home layout. The North is depicted on top of 99 percent of house blueprints. Some engineers, however, adjust the North point on their floor layouts for ease. In this case, the South side of the building is adjusted up against a wall or other structure that blocks outdoor weather conditions.

In the United States, Europe and Australia, it is common practice to give directions using compass points: Northeast (NE), Northwest (NW), Southeast (SE) and Southwest (SW). However, in Japan, Germany and India, it is common practice to use grid numbers instead: 1st floor (1F), 2nd floor (2F), 3rd floor (3F) and so on. Which method you choose to follow when drafting a house plan will depend on what country you are in. In any case, make sure to indicate the direction of each floor with some kind of marker during the planning stage.

It is important to remember that even if a house has more than one entrance, it must be entered through a single door which opens into the direction of the plan. For example, a house with an east-facing front door would not be considered valid directionally because people entering the house would be walking away from the north pole!
